Review – I received a copy of this book for my honest review, no other compensation was received.
I was immediately pulled in from the first page and I didn’t put it down unless I absolutely had to – silly kids and their dinner!
I’ve always wanted to go to Paris and the author made me feel like I was there. Her descriptions were amazing! This was a witty yet emotional read. The characters were well developed and not cliche – like Lena, even though she is from a rich family she isn’t a snotty brat. I also loved the fact that Lena and Rob develop a friendship first.
The story spans a couple of years and it has it’s share of ups, downs, and secrets to keep you engaged. Like I said, I couldn’t put it down.
This was a perfect romantic read.
I am an avid reader of chick lit, romance and fantasy, caffeine addict and a badge-wearing Mr. Darcy/Colin Firth fan. I released my first book at the age of six. It had six postcard-size pages stitched together and bound in velvet paper. The book was titled “Eliza and Robert” and had atrocious mistakes in every single word. Some words were written in mirror image. Unintentionally. I remember being immensely proud of my creation. Turns out there’s a remarkable constancy to my life: decades later, I still love the name Robert and the genre romance. As for my spelling and grammar, they are only marginally better than at age six (thank God for editors!). I live and work in Paris, France. When not writing, I read romance (what else?) and spend time with my family.
